Your tour around some of the 100 acres that make up the Mamaku Blue Estate will give you a real taste of Rural New Zealand countryside and give a viewing of some of the unusual land formations that make Mamaku unique.
Onboarding our purpose built “air-conditioned” people carriers we will begin your journey past our blueberry development block before heading into one of our main grazing paddocks. Whilst travelling through this block you will learn how Mamaku grew and became a leading saw-milling township of NZ native timbers 100 years ago. You will even get to see where some of the old wooden railway tracks passed through the property on their way to one of the last Native sawmills.
Carrying on through the farm we stop a few moments to spend time getting to know some of our friendly livestock (tame cows and sheep) and a chance for a few photos. Then it’s on to the earthquake fault where we stop for a look at a Narrow Deep crack in the ground caused by earthquakes and a shift in the earth’s tectonic plates. We then step inside our beautiful native bush and take a brief walk through to our natural bush cathedral (a favourite wedding location). Listen to some of New Zealand’s native birds in the wild and experience the wonder of unspoilt bush and scenery.
On emerging from the bush we then board our people carrier and make our way back to the main Mamaku Blue Complex and past many of the giant Tors (volcanic vents) left from the Rotorua eruption over 200,000 years ago.
Once back at the Complex, we invite you to sample some of our handcrafted wines and liqueurs or try our jams, chutneys or pure Blueberry juice. Take advantage of our Speciality Blueberry Shop where you can purchase our unique products as mementos of your experience at Mamaku Blue. If time permits, stay a while for lunch and sample some of our speciality Blueberry dishes in our café overlooking the peaceful orchard and countryside.
